Jack Abramoff gets Minimum

A judge sentenced Jack abramoff to 5 years and 10 months in prison for his fraud charges. Abramoff and this colleague were sentenced to the minimum amount allowed by law for bilking his clients out of millions dollars. Of course, if he lived in the Bronx and stole a $500 TV and his name was Jerome, he would have probably have received the same jail time.

Does anyone wonder why people on the lower end of the social and economic spectrum have little respect for our justice system?

He should have been drawn and quartered. Or damn close to it.

That should apply to the enron guy, global crossing guys, etc etc.

In fact, members of both houses earn enough to buy their own damn lunches- they even have a subsidized cafetria, with 3 star chefs.

Further, why should lobbyists be allowed to pay for travel, thinly disguised junkets, meant to but influence?
